Hydrate and then some! Our favorite fitness guru Eileen recommends drinking plenty of water not just during her classes, but all day long!


She found these statistics from her weekly emails by Randy Step:


  • 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
  • 37% of American’s thirst mechanism is so weak it is mistaken for hunger.
  • 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short term memory and trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing on printed page or computer screen.
  • 8 to 10 glasses of water a day significantly eases back & joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
  • #1 trigger for daytime fatigue is lack of water.

So you are trying to help? Caregiving – a Societal and Individual Crisis

“I don’t talk about caregiving from textbook knowledge, but rather from my experience of being one for both of my parents. This program invites participants into the joys and harsh realities of caregiving with some very intentional ways of managing.  This program is for the caregivers – and those who are not YET caregivers – in learning how to manage systems and the daily issues we face.”
